A fulfilling sex life is an integral part of whole-being health and wellness. And cannabis, the whole-body healer, is considered a major player in the field of sexual medicine.
While nothing beats great sex, people are battered when it comes to love and intimacy. Women often suffer with body issues and repression; men often deal with erectile dysfunction and performance anxiety. Many people have been involved in sexual abuse or trauma. These realities have a profound impact on the emotional, physical, and mental stability of an individual, as well as our collective culture.
Cannabis offers many benefits to the realm of sexual experience. It tends to open people up for conversation and promotes bonding. It can facilitate the necessary awareness, reflection, and release needed for healing of past pain. It reduces anxiety and enhances physical sensitivity. Indeed, marijuana helps people get out of their heads (What’s for dinner?) and into their bodies, where present moment sensation can be felt and enjoyed without the incessant stream of thoughts that typically dominate awareness.
For over a decade, Sexologist Nick Karras has been working to gather anecdotal evidence of the effects of cannabis in promoting sexual wellness.
As one 58-year-old male states, “Marijuana is a must for me. When under its effects my erections as well as orgasms feel more intense. This is especially significant in the case of taking the SSRI anti-depressant Celexa, which left me in a state of difficulty even reaching orgasm.”
Another woman describes her story. Between menopause, a full-time job, and three kids, sex was last on her list. She held on to her marriage out of convenience and routine, but felt little connection to her husband. While medicating with marijuana for other reasons, he suggested she give it a try. It provided the psychological freedom and body-awareness she needed to really let loose—and the excitement she now feels for her husband has given new life to their marriage.
These accounts (among countless others) demonstrate the power of cannabis to open avenues for the expression and experience of sexual energy. With the legalization of medicinal and recreational marijuana use, we see exciting potential for a healthier, happier, sexier nation!
